06/23/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Flowood (Jackson), MS Leland is a solid, athletic catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is outstanding as indicated by his 60 time of 6.96. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. Quick lateral movements allow him to center/deaden pitches in the dirt off of a soft chest. Pop times showed in 2.20 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine through a squared setup. He is aggressive as he attacks balls through a level swing path. Hands are quick (83 mph exit velocity) and he has strength in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. With 2 years to further develop, Leland has an upside and will make an immediate impact at the next level with his offensive / defensive abilities.
